Take a look at my layout:

Altenew July 2017 blog hop

I truly love how this layout turned out.  I have to admit, when I sat down to create this page, I was clueless as to what I wanted to do.  I knew I wanted to use this photo of my sisters baby bump.  As I moved papers and embellishments around, it all came together.

For this layout, I used three of the new stamp sets, Altenew Baby Balloon, Little One and Extended Family.  I paired them with Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

Altenew July 2017 blog hop

My baby sister is having a baby and my entire family can not wait for her this little one to arrive. So I decided to dedicate a page to my sister.

To create this page:

  • I cut the white card base to 6 x 8 and rounded the corners using We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board.
  • Creating the title was the next step.  Using the Extended Family stamp set to cut out the word niece and adhere it to the title using the Brother ScanNCut.Altenew July 2017 blog hop
  • The onesie from Altenew Little One was a perfect addition to add to this page.
  • I didn’t have the die to cut these out so I used my Brother ScanNCut to cut out the onesies.
  • Spray each of the onesie with Altenew Frosty Pink Spray Ink and dry them.
  • Once they dried, punch a hole at the top and string the silver twine though the holes.
  • Adhere the twine to the back of the white card panel.
  • Adhere the photo onto the white card panel using foam dots.
  • Use Altenew Baby Balloon stamp set and stamp the sentiment at the bottom of the white card panel.Altenew July 2017 blog hop
  • Adhere the card panel onto the pattern paper using foam dots.
  • Cut some of the white flowers that come in the Reflection Scrapbook Collection and place them to the right side of the photo under the white card panel.Altenew July 2017 Blog Hop
  • To add balance to the page, stamp a sentiment from the Baby Balloon stamp set on the main scrapbook page, to the right of the photo.
  • To finish the page off, add enamel dots in random places on the layout.

Nothing to it!! So what do you think? I would love to hear from you.

Take a look at my tag:

Rubber Dance Stamps Beautiful Bugs

I had so much creating this tag.  I recently took an online class that taught me about the color wheel and how to use colors.  I created a postcard size switch using three colors next to each other.  I used blue, green and yellow green.

When I saw the theme for this challenge I knew I wanted to use this postcard.

Using Neat and Tangled Scalloped Die set cut out the tag.

Using the Mini Misti, stamp the Dragonfly and the sentiment from Rubber Dance Stamps Beautiful Bugs and Something Wonderful stamp set using black ink.

Rubber Dance Stamps Something Wonderful

Then use We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile Power Punch to punch a hole in the tag.

Now it time to get the ribbon colored.  Using Tim Holtz Crinkle Ribbon, cut three pieces.

Spray them with Altenew Ink Spray Ocean Wave, Frayed Leaf, and Warm Sunshine. Crinkle in your hand and then dry it with a heat tool.

Add them to the tag and your done.

Crinkled Ribbon

I love how this turned out and I love that is is my last project as a member of this team.

Altenew Scrapbook Collection Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Scrapbook Collection Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the amazing Reflection Scrapbook Collection.  If you’ve arrived here from awesome Elsie Robinson’s blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Scrapbook Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my layout:

reflection scrapbook collection

For this layout, I used the pattern paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection to create the circle patten behind my photo.

I used a 2in circle punch to punch out 4 circles out of the different pattern papers that has matching colors in the photo.

Then I trimmed the photo down to fit over the circles without totally covering them.

To add dimension behind the photo, I cut two black and white pieces of the pattern paper and adhered it to the back of the photo.

Once the circles and the photo were adhered down, the page looked to white so I used Altenew Frayed Leaf Ink Spray to add splatters around the focal point of the page.

After the ink dried, I placed the title down using the letter stickers that come in the kit.

To finish the page off, I placed some the the chipboard in the kit on top of the photo and under the title of the page.  Adding the date to the bottom of the page using the rotary stamp which is also included in the Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

Let’s take a closer look:

So what do you think?  Would you use pattern paper to create different shapes to use on your layouts?  I would love to hear what you think below!

Embossing – Where Creativity Meets C9

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is Embossing!

Take a look at my card:

For this card I use the heart die from Concord and 9th Heartstrings Die to create an embossed heart on the card front. I have to confess, when I ran the paper through the Big Shot, I didn’t expect the paper to ruffle up.

Once I took the paper off of the cutting plate, I started to get upset.  Thinking I had to start over, I took a second look at the paper. I actually loved the way the ruffles looked on the card front. The paper looks handmade so I decided to go with it.

So I decided to watercolor inside the heart.  Once that dried I added the word kind from Concord and 9th Kind Card Frame Add on Die across the heart.

To finish the card off, I used Tonic Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss to add shimmer to the watercolor and the sentiment and some New Day Card Kit Enamel Dots.

Take a look:

I love how this card turned out!! What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

Art Journaling Series – Imagine

Hello everyone!!  I’m starting a new series on my blog called the Art Journaling Series!!  I’m having so much fun with paints and stencils that I want to do more and share more!! I will try and post at least once a month for now but we will see how this goes!!

I posted a page yesterday, if you didn’t see it, you can check it out here.

Let take a look at my new page:

art journaling

Here’s how I created this page:

  1. I applied different size washi tape to my 8 x 10 Gel Press Plate.
  2. Then I randomly added Vicki Boutin Acrylic Paint in yellow and orange on top of the washi tape plate.
  3. I used a brayer to even out the paint.
  4. Once the plate was covered, I remove the washi tape, leaving the pattern you see above.
  5. After the paint dried, I used some stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop (Mini Ledger, Mini Time for Love, and Mini Specimens) and Liquitex Black Gesso to add the different marking on the page.
  6.  To finish the page off, I stamped Visible Image Face It! and Imagine Dream Inspire stamps using Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink.

I totally love how this page turned out.  I thought about writing on this page but it didn’t need it at all.

I’m linking my page up to Craft Stampers Take It Make It Challenge this month.
